On Our Selection

This is two books in one, it includes Our New Selection too. I love these early Australian stories. They show the tough times and the families and communites working together. I like the idea of carving out your slice in the bush and families coping and making the most of it.

Some of the others books I have read had more love, Like Elizabeth Lane's work. This book seems to be a retelling of events and mishaps and humourous events. There is still a trajectory, but it lacks engagment because of the lack of character depth. But it is still an enjoyable yarn.
